About Survivingbreastcancer.org

Our Mission

 

The mission of SurvivingBreastCancer.org (SBC), a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is to empower those diagnosed with breast cancer and their families.  SBC serves as an educational and virtual community platform - offering support from day one and beyond, meeting patients and their families where they are on the continuum of a cancer diagnosis. SBC incorporates an integrative and collaborative approach to breast cancer, from risk reduction strategies and prevention, to treatment, survivorship, navigating end of life, and beyond.
